Sierra Meservey is a first year Intermedia MFA Graduate student. She graduated in with a B.A. in Art with a concentration in Drawing from the University of Maine at Augusta in 2015. Sierra is a performance artist who works with a range of mediums including fiber, glass, paint, and even common household items. Her work explores personal connections: how they can both strengthen and weaken us as well as entangle and strangle. She asks how a beautiful web can become tangled, and how we can maintain relationships without them resembling a leash or tether. Using hair, fibers, and scans, her work visually explores the complexity, absurdity, vulnerability and power of human interconnectedness.
As part of her recently completed work, Sierra’s Lady in Training included a time-based public performance as a part of her Studio Critique, a required class for all Intermedia MFA students.
